Arsenal take down Spurs
A first-half blitz by Arsenal that saw them score three times gave them a massive victory over bitter north London rivals on Sunday afternoon.
Emile Smith Rowe, roared by a jubilant local crowd, opened the scoring and was late to convert a Bukayo Saka cross. Then it was Smith Rowe’s turn to supply his teammates, finding Aubameyang who made it 2-0 after just 25 minutes.

It got even better, as Bukayo Saka put his name on the roster before halftime, which saw some Spurs fans refuse to take their seats for the second half.
Although the Spurs found belated solace through Heung-Min Son, they were a well beaten team on the day and seemed lacking in direction, drive and ideas in what became their third consecutive loss, during which time they have conceded 9 goals.
Should Kane have had a penalty?
A moment that caused confusion and controversy in the game was in the middle of the second half, when a meeting between Ben White and Harry Kane looked like it was going to cause Tottenham to be awarded a penalty.
Surprisingly to many Arsenal fans, no penalty occurred and the Gunners remained in control of the game.
Surely that was a penalty for Kane? I found it cheeky.
Anyway, not given.

Speaking to Sky Sports today, former Premier League referee Dermot Gallagher revealed that he thought it was a shame. saying:
“I think it is [Ben White is] lucky,”
“He doesn’t get the ball, I think Kane is quick. It’s a little slow and it catches it. I wouldn’t have been surprised if a penalty was given there. “
However, he was also present to explain why it did not happen, confirming:
“What I would say is that it did not reach the threshold of an obvious error. The VAR considered that it was not a clear and obvious error.
“I thought they were checking if I was in or out [the penalty area] in the first place, but they thought not.
“That is a decision in which I believe that the VAR is in a difficult position because if the referee gives a penalty, I do not think it will go against him.”
❌ Did not meet the threshold for a “clear and obvious error”

Had the Spurs gotten the penalty, they may have started to find a way back to a game from which they seemed completely out of place. However, despite the controversial form, they finally got the result they deserved for their performance in the Emirates.
